For those who know me, I eat and fast according to my menstrual cycle and fuel and train my exercise sessions according to my menstrual cycle. I base my meals around a good quality protein source (be it eggs, salmon, chicken) to ensure I maintain muscle bulk – a crucial metabolic organ which helps regulate our metabolic rate. I don’t shy away from fat – we NEED healthy fats in our diet to support cell membrane and hormones. Remember – our sex hormones (oestrogen and progesterone) are steroid and fat based; so we need fat to support them. I always ensure that when I am eating the macronutrient carbohydrates, I try to get as much from an unprocessed source which is packed with fibre and phyto and micronutrients. From there, that’s when the lightbulb moment was born; the idea of A pinch of TLC © – using food for TLC (tender loving care) and also TLC representing THE LOW CARB. So here, you will kind whole food unprocessed meals and recipes which are delicious.
Enjoy ; Lots of love and fat kisses

What is Lifestyle medicine?
Food can be the medicine we need to help
feed and fuel our hormones and help
manage hormonal imbalances.
Physical activity and exercise is not
only beneficial for physical health
but also mental health.
Stress can be positive if managed properly.
If we do not manage stress positively, the chemical
and hormonal changes that ensue in our bodies can be negative.
SLEEP! My mother always told me
when I was stressed, that a good night
sleep would make it all feel better tomorrow.
Avoidance of toxic substances
Toxic substances is not limited to alcohol, drugs and smoking,
Food and environmental substances can be hormonal
disrupters and can be just as damaging to your health.
Healthy relationships with colleagues,
families and friends is crucial to
mental and physical health.
